AbstractThe involvement of the cervical spine in musculoskeletal diseases can be crucial in terms of prognosis and morbidity. Early diagnosis of possible involvement of the craniocervical junction is essential to avoid the onset of neurological complications with poor prognosis. Among inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis affects the cervical spine frequently (in about 25% of patients). Atlantoaxial inflammatory changes are also detectable in spondyloarthritis. The involvement of the cervical spine in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis is recognized as the cause of various clinical manifestations that may invol...

AbstractSummaryWe found that the MRI T2* value is moderately negatively correlated with the bone mineral density assessed with quantitative computed tomography in evaluating osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and may have some potential in assessing severity of lumbar osteoporosis for scientific research.PurposeTo investigate the T2* quantitative measurement in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its correlation with the bone mineral density (BMD) values evaluated with quantitative computed tomography (QCT) in women with postmenopausal lumbar vertebrae osteoporosis.Materials and methodsEighty-seven postmenopausal women ...

ConclusionMesenteric cysts represent a rare cause of intra-abdominal mass. Owing to low prevalence, literature is limited as is guidance on management. Careful pre-operative planning is essential so as to avoid operative complications. Imaging such as USS is of great importance; however Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) may be of more benefit, owing to the complex anatomical relations within which mesenteric cysts can present. Surgical excision is widely reported as the surgical treatment of choice for symptomatic cysts.

AbstractObjectivesThere is currently no standardized approach for assessing the depth of invasion (DOI) of oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma via diagnostic imaging. We investigated the usefulness of contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) for estimating the pathological DOI of oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma by evaluating the correlation of pathological DOI with the DOIs on CECT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed 21 of 139 patients who underwent radical surgery for primary oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma between 2009 and 2018. The 21 cases were evaluable, without dental a...

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) is a low cost and effective imaging modality that is accessible immediately post procedure which allows the clinician to instantly perform additional ablation of the tumor if a residual tumor is detected. CEUS can be an alternative to contrast enhanced CT in patients with underlying renal disease or iodine allergy. The purpose of this abstract is to share our experience with use of contrast enhanced ultrasound after microwave ablation for HCC with MRI correlation and posttransplant pathology.

Authors: Chen SY, Wu WF, Di C, Zhao XX Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation between carotid artery stenosis (CAS) measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the coronary stenosis (CS) determined by computed tomography angiography (CTA). METHODS: In this prospective study, 42 subjects diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD) underwent MRI and CTA examinations. The severity degree and number of CAS, the score, detection rate and type of carotid plaque, and also the severity degree and number of CS were assessed. Spearman's rank correlation test was used to evaluate the correlation between ...
